clinton today came out in favor of supporting gay marriage. young people in the rnc's own report, young people are the ones leading the way on that. i'll give reince priebus credit for saying in that report that the issue of gay rights is a gateway issue for young people that if the republicans don't get right on, no young people are going to listen to him on anything else. it is a gateway, a gateway. they said that. they alluded barely to the question of immigration and immigration reform. you had the president today nominating tony perez, hispanic american, to be secretary of labor. putting the point that it is not so much diversity as rush limbaugh says, it is diversity. the republicans don't get it. you read that report, it sounds like they want to send an anthropological study group into america to look at hispanics, blacks, young people, gays and so forth. they just don't get it. and the way you get to them is with issues. health care, immigration reform, gay rights, women's rights. if they want minorities, if they want to expand the party as they claim they do, it is not a matter

supreme court at this point. >> okay. andy, with he know that hillary clinton is publicly supporting same-sex marriage. of course, her husband, former president bill clinton, who signed that into law say that d.o.m.a. should be overturned and senator rob portman is citing his familiarity with this issue, his son is gay. how do you think this is going to play out in the 2014 midterms and then subsequently 2016 general election? >> well, alex, we've seen a clear shift in public opinion on this issue over the last ten years. it's been quite dramatic. all sorts of polls now, including the reuter's poll last week shows that the public supports gay marriage even civil unions. even in the south, the majority supports gay marriage or civil unions together. democrats are united on this issue. they say it's a big winner, especially among younger voters, and there's a real sort of active debate within the republican party about how to play this. there's a lot of people saying we've got to stop emphasizing these social issues because they are not working in our favor. however, if you're going to have

about hamilton's history of womanizing. for example, bill clinton was not the first, and bill clinton was not the worst when it comes to misbehavior in high office. there's a long, long history of it. and eliot spitzer, arnold schwarzenegger, john edwards, these guys -- david petraeus had nothing on alexander hamilton. and what we find is if you read, for example, letters written by martha washington during those winter camps, she was tough. she was like a soldier. she didn't complain about the weather, she didn't complain about the harsh conditions, but she did complain about one thing. there was a tom cat one winter that was misbehaving, and it was noisy, noisy, and it kept her awake at night, so she nicknamed the tom cat alexander hamilton. [laughter] i also did a book a few years ago called "life in the white house," and it was about the presidents at ease. what do they eat? what hobbies do they have? what are they like as fathers and husbands? how did their their kids turn out? as another way of assess l presidential character, providing us with another lens. for example, we're a

, as you know, by quoting bill clinton in a speech he gave in yale in 2003 where he said america assumes it will be number one forever. please continue doing whatever you're doing, it doesn't matter because you'll be number one forever. but if you can conceive of the possibility of becoming number two, surely, it is in america's interest to create a world space order that will then constrain the next number one. that's very wise of bill clinton to say that. i'm sorry he didn't follow it up by pushing hard for it, but my book builds on that wisdom and insight of bill clinton that now is the time for america and the west to create a world space order that will constrain any rising powers anywhere in the world. >> some of the practical suggestion sas are things like new security council with 777 members. what is the chance of this happening when you look at the reform? you were once singapore's ambassador to the u.n. you know when people tried this, tried to get india, china vetoes. you try to get brazil on, the mexicans get upset. you take on nigeria, the south africans get upset.

hear a second case that challenges the defense of marriage act, signed by president bill clinton in 1996 which denies federal benefits to married same-sex couples. the united states has formally handed control of bagram prison to afghanistan following more than a year of delays. the detention center has been dubbed the other guantanamo after reports of prisoners being tortured and abused there. the exact term of the transfer deal remains shadowy, but the u.s. has reportedly received assurances from afghan officials they will not release prisoners deemed to pose a security threat. the u.s. will continue to play a role in determining which prisoners are released and will remain -- maintain custody of some unknown number of afghan prisoners and about three dozen non-afghan prisoners. at monday's ceremony, the commander of the nato forces in afghanistan stressed the enduring u.s. role there. >> the ceremony to transfer the detention facility is important, but what is most significant is the broader political security transition process. it is a small step toward a transformation that wi
